I was wondering if there is minimum amount of certain materials needed in order to sell? For example say I only had 1 pentium pro gold cap or a couple ounces of gold legged ICs, along with a good amount of other boards (a couple 100 lbs). Thanks in advance! Ryan

Nope! The only consideration when sending a small amount of anything is whether it's worth the shipping costs.

Well, one more consideration. It has to be weighable. Sending a single gold pin is not going to be payable. Ideally you have at least an ounce, but I’ve had half-ounce payouts.

Lol, yeah... but I was hoping the shipping consideration covered that. :D

I guess I was meaning like 4 Oz or so of 1 particular cpu. I've found the higher weight of total shipment is cheaper per pound so I always try to make it worthy. I've probably got a few different types of cpus that don't total a pound(higher end). Thanks for the info guys

Perfectly fine. As others have mentioned, as long as the thing you're sending has weight of some kind.
I will sometimes send small boxes of higher end junk, and for fun, will throw in one random stick of a RAM blank I had laying around. Just some oddball piece.
Probably annoying for the scale guys, but thats what the printed or hand written packing slip is for.
Sometimes these oddball pieces weigh in at like .15 ounce or some silly nonsense, but as long as you're making money after shipping.......

12Lbs of cell phone boards and 2 ICs lol.

I’ve sent orders where everything in the box was under a pound. Scale guys were probably cursing my existence those days.

A 486, a gold cap, etc.
